Why Aren't The Simpsons on This List?!

While The Simpsons repeats are available nationally its ratings are not counted in the weekly syndicated ratings because The Simpsons does not sell any national advertising in syndication.

Please note that the syndicated weekly results are delayed versus normal reporting.  While we get the broadcast and cable ratings for the prior Monday-Sunday period every Tuesday, there is an extra week of lag time with the syndicated ratings and these numbers are not for last week, but for the week before last.

-
For syndicated shows which air on multiple days, the viewership shown is the average of all telecasts.

BUENA VISTA items are syndicated packages of old Disney movies.

DAD = Disney ABC Domestic Television, SPT= Sony Pictures Television, 2/T=Twentieth Television, ESP = ESPN, CTD = CBS Television Distribution.

AT = Additional Time/Telecasts, more than the typical number of episodes or time periods/week

    Does anyone know what Kelly Ripas talent is.
    And, no Mike, we are not jealous of her, nor do we hate her.

  • Marie

    Give it a rest as Kelly has a hit show. I don’t watch talk shows but did watch it when Regis was on. I like Kelly but lost interest after Regis left but not because of her, just not fond of talk shows or reality shows in general. Regis was one of a kind.

  • Karen

    Kelly has no talent and no, Kelly does not have a hit show. Michael has a hit show. When Kelly was on by herself the ratings were down.
    Kelly needs to stop talking like a street walker.
